Argosy University is a bit expensive, but I've crunched numbers, and the tuition isn't much higher than a University of California school. For the Criminal Justice program (which is an accelerated platform), I found that the price of tuition was well worth the money because it saves so much time (and there is very little hassle). Because classes are online, there is schedule flexibility, so it's a great choice for those who have family obligations and/or are currently employed. There was always good communication between my Academic Adviser, Financial Aid Adviser and individual instructors. The program's curriculum consists of material that is both pertinent in the career field and challenging. The material is intended to prepare you for a career in your degree, and I found that it does just that. For me, Argosy University Online was such a pleasant experience, that upon graduation of earning my AS in Criminal Justice, I decided to continue my education towards earning my BS degree. I recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a no-hassle, flexible learning environment. Just like anything else in life, you'll get out of it what you put into it. Argosy U Online was no exception to that rule for me.

I'm having a hard time understanding what is being teached at this University I've been dealing with a student here,Dionne Denae Equality rae Lee Davis/ Tinnermon/ Lincoln.she has been at this university for some time and by dealing with her my problems became worse and now I'm actually in need of help from a real doctor. I plan on tweeting this because now I have to pay for the help that I really need after letting her talk me into expressing my problems to her with no progress at all. Please explain to me what is the curriculum that students like her follow because it is not presentable to someone as myself that really need the help that this school suppose to provide. Yes, it may be my fault for confiding in her but if it didn't work fore I don't think she can be that doctor that we are use to.I hope seone can get back to me to explain please.

I started at Argosy last February and just finished my AA in Psychology. I was able to double up some of my courses so graduated in just under 18 months. So I've taken other online/distance courses (Phoenix and PennFoster) and so far this school has been the most realistic and best quality of them all. Like any college, some of the courses are harder, some are easier, some of the teachers are more forgiving than others, and sometimes there can be glitches in the grade system you have to keep an eye on. Overall, I do enjoy this college, and I was referred to it by a friend who already had a job in the mental health care field after he got his degree here. I do have to say, there is a lot of writing involved. I don't know if all online schools are based around constant essay writing, but this one is. Very few tests, in fact only 1 in my past 2 yrs.

This school is expensive but it is also rigorous and prepares you well. I had regular contact (monthly) from my financial adviser and academic adviser. I did get a new financial adviser part way through but it wasn't a big deal and they did just as good a job as the first one. I had regular contact with my classmates and professors during classes. There was a lot required and although most classes did not have quizzes (a couple did) they did have discussion posts, responses, and papers that were required and the papers were generally long. A final paper that is around 15-20 was usually required towards the end of the class which really made you think about the class as a whole. I see a lot of negatively; mostly with either communication issues or financial aid which surprises me because those were both great. I got contact even when it wasn't needed and financial aid was standard; through the DOE. I can see where you may have issues if you you've defaulted in the past with DOE but otherwise the whole process was very standard and comparable to every other college I have attended (this is my doctorate so I have attended 3 other schools previously and all were the exact same process financial aid wise).

Hello Everyone, I have had great times attending Argosy University online for my AA degree. I am continuing for my BS degree this September. I am so great full for everything Argosy University has helped with. I was lost and then started school here and I have changed so much. I have so many professional contacts that I needed to move forward with my career and Argosy helped with that in a huge way. Thank you, Kayla

This school financial services is bad. I was told I wouldn't have to pay anything until I either quit school or graduated. I was still attending my classes. Then i receive a letter saying I need to pay or I will have to stop attending their school. They are a joke. Now I owe over 10,000 for attending 6 months. Never again will I send anyone here.

I am a veteran of the United States Army. I joined this school to get my masters degree in business management. Both my husband and I. Well, the financial aid is completely insane. My gi bill had ran out and they were still trying to get money from the va. I told financial aid to put a stop on gi benefits now I owe 1200$ dollars for their mistake as well as another 1800$ for dropping the class because of what they have done to my husband and I. I don't recommend this scho especially for military students.

I have been working hard to earn my Bachelor's degree at Argosy. I see so many bad reviews and I do not understand why. Do people find work after they graduate? That's what I want to know. I heard that your degree is useless.. is that true? Or has anyone found a good job after graduating from here?

I graduated last December with my B.S. in Bus Admin and cant even get a job doing entry level work. My current job doesn't require a degree but the whole point of going back to school was to get a good job making more money.. I want my masters but will not go back to Argosy for it

Please stay away from this school. its not worth your time or money. This school has the worst ethics and the cost for going here is off the charts. I had the worst financial advisor who continued to lie to me and after I reported him to the school , the school back him up 100 percent. I did finish with a 3.81 GPA in psychology but I warn anyone please do NOT attend this school. Nay positive comments on here about this school are mostly coming from the school staff. BUYER BEWARE

Yeah! Time to celebrate something else i will be in debt to and never get a job in the field nor have the funds to get the degree! BERNIE SANDERS 2016 !!!!! I'm tired of seeing those fighting to get ahead yet to be disappointed once again. If we had community colleges within our states providing the free services to the Middle and Lower class citizens we would have so many unintelligent people already. The time is now we need this change for our future generations to prosper as this is only getting more and more grim. BERNIE SANDERS FOR 2016 !!!!! Enough is enough!

This school was okay at first but one year later I cannot get any help from anyone ...I email , call, etc and there is never any returns. I have gotten so fed up with this that I quit school. I will never attend Argosy again. Also I would not recommend this school to anyone.

I have read many negative reviews, and I do not believe them. I have obtained my BA, and Masters from this school online, and I have had a GREAT experience. College is suppose to be challenging, and Argosy makes you earn your degree. The people that are complaining seems to me are the people just wants a hand out degree. Yes, I must admit that the classes are a bit pricey, but it's also your choice. I love the school so much that I am starting back for the Doctoral program, so stop hating on Argosy, and get a good EDUCATION.

Did you actually get a job with your degree from Argosy after you completed your schooling?

I was in the process of enrolling into Argosy's Master in Counseling Washington DC program and, after immediate acceptance, decided to do more research about this school with no apparent admission criteria. Got your BA/BS? Congratulations, you've been accepted. Another red flag was inability to review department's faculty and get an idea of who I would be learning from in the next 2 years. Also, the price of "education" was crazy steep. Basically, the only reason I was considering Argosy is because it well aligned with my vocational demands and Master in Counseling program on this particular campus is CACREP accredited, which is pretty much a must for those wanting to seek LPC licensure. So Argosy does have that going for itself, but so do a lot of other non-profit schools at a much cheaper price. Anyways, after thorough research about this school and for-profits in general, I withdrew my application and never looked back. Instead, I am attending a reputable, non-profit, accredited mortar & brick university this fall and don't have to worry if my future employees will question the validity of my degree. I would really encourage everyone to THOROUGHLY RESEARCH FOR-PROFIT SCHOOLS before proceeding. Even with accreditation, I don't think it's worth it. Personally, I really don't want to financially support this awful business that's robbed so many people of their money with nothing to show for it. Either way, best of luck to all. And remember, just do your research and educate yourself.

I think a degree is what you make of it but I would encourage people to look at schools that have online programs but still remain "brick and mortar" schools. I had a college who earned her Doctorate from Argosy and she's doing well in her career. I also know a lot people who earned degree's from University of Phoenix and you the issues they are having now.

I am wondering why you posted on quality of instruction and degree satisfaction if you never actually attended the school? So you are saying it is a 1 out of 5 on the actual quality of instruction not even knowing what the courses are like I agree you should research before attending a school but I think the only thing you can comment on is price and admission process so please keep your rating to yourself if you know nothing of the actual instruction.

Hey Jojo,

Unfortunately, I had to select something for quality of instruction and other non-applicable q's in order to even write a review. However, I made sure my review reflected my enrollment experience only and I must have been successful because you clearly got the mesage. Perhaps a disclaimer that I can't comment on quality of education may have been fair, but again, I clearly noted that I was commenting on admission process only. The rest of my "rant" is about for-profit schools and I stand behind that firmly.

This nation has tons of schools to select from and the path you take to higher academia is simply that "the path you take". This discussion is not that serious to me and I see that it's being used to vent send disrespectful and unpleasant comments. So I'll move on.

Eric, I agree. If Argosy suits you and you feel well informed about the program of your choice...there's nobody stopping you!

Don't waste your time or money here . I just graduated in April, and this school is a joke. The staff is unreachable all the time. It is impossible to reach anyone or get any straight answers from anyone ever. My financial aid advisor never returned my calls and I ended up screwed bc my aid was revoked and I had to reapply half way through because I was never notified. Furthermore, as much as I want to be proud of my degree I feel like it was not challenging. Not even a little bit. And speaking of degrees, no one seems to be able to tell me where mine is and when it will be coming in and it has been 11 weeks since I "graduated". Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else.

I am surprised to hear that as I am a current student and get a call every single month from my FA adviser and my Academic Adviser. Also when I email a professor I hear back within a day unless it is a weekend.

This is a comment blog. So asking me to keep my comments to myself suggest to me that you are offended by it. My comment stands and it "it is what it is". One of the most powerful gifts that we have been given is "freedom of speech". Respect it.
